Our borders are being assaulted by refugees........ children seeking asylum from Central American countries where conditions are what we call in dawgpatch really, really bad. They're not coming here to steal our jobs. They're coming here to have a life.
This is not a matter of boarder security. Security is stopping and rounding them up at the boarder.
We can show them our darker side, treat them like criminals, arrange to crush their delusions of safety and happiness and arrange for their eventual return to hell after sheltering them in kennels like stray dawgs for a time as our own wayward children (you) pout and stamp and soil diapers while deciding their fate.
Cowards that you are, perhaps the opportunity has presented itself for you to actually stand up for the principles those Founding Fathers you so adore, envisioned.
Now, Coondog knows that the boarder states, due to misplaced ethnocentrism or because somebody's great, great granddaddy died at the Alamo, will never succumb to comprehensive immigration reform at the federal level. Never going to happen. So, let's explore States Rights, near and dear to many of your cold hearts, for however long your attention span can maintain attachment to a singular issue.
What if individual states were able to decide, independently, whether or not they wish to formulate a methodology for sponsorship for refugees? What if those churches we're supposed to count on and social welfare organizations and just plain caring citizens, as well as state governments, took upon themselves the responsibility for this sponsorship whereas these people might assimilate, under supervision and with charity and decency, into a society that resembles the one they expected to find after such an arduous journey?
Even the meanest, most despicable members might vote for a measure that allows them to slough off the responsibility to somebody else more willing to deal with it. And these children, thus relieved of the perpetual fear for their lives, may actually prove to be more amicable and receptive of social norms than your own privileged, uncontrollable brats.
Think about it. A humanitarian gesture may prove to be a positive example to our own population, currently bent on violence and inhumanity, and to the world in general. You may even dispel some of the self loathing you must surely feel given your history of dysfunction and failure.
Hopefully you will afford some due consideration to these humble and, hopefully, helpful suggestions.
